The CBS game that will be eating up the most TVs in America appears to be the Denver Broncos at the Baltimore Ravens. This has potential to be a decent game seeing as how the Broncos have gotten off to a 2-0 start when everybody had them written off for this season. On the flip side though, the Ravens were unimpressive against Cincinnati last week. Right now, it’s hard to imagine either of these teams as a playoff team, though it’s still early.
One of the more interesting CBS games should be Tennessee at Jacksonville — an AFC South showdown between two teams that were both in the playoffs last year. But you’ll only be getting this game if you live relatively close to either Nashville or Jacksonville.
During the early FOX games, most of the country will be getting either Green Bay at Washington or San Francisco at Kansas City, which isn’t necessarily bad. At least there will be interesting quarterbacks to watch.
The entire west coast is getting Niners-Chiefs, which is a showdown between a pair of first-year starters in Jimmy Garoppolo and Patrick Mahomes. Can’t go wrong there. As for the Pack-Skins game, it’s a matchup of seasoned veterans in Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith. Not bad either.
Unless you live in the northern United States or Arizona, you will be getting the Dallas Cowboys at the Seattle Seahawks. If you do fall under one of those regions, you’re getting the Chicago Bears at the Arizona Cardinals. Dallas-Seattle should be a fairly entertaining game. Meanwhile, Chicago-Arizona should result in a Bears win. If the Bears can’t beat the Cardinals, Chicago fans might want to reconsider that whole “the Bears are Super Bowl contenders” argument.
